Woman Driver Dies In An Early Morning Motorcycle Accident In Georgia

Last updated Tuesday, November 15th, 2022

A woman motorcyclist was tragically killed in a fatal motorcycle accident in Georgia at the intersection of Pine Avenue and Slappey Drive in Albany around 7 AM. on October 18, Tuesday.

Georgia State Patrol Troopers confirmed that the devastating crash unfolded when the motorcycle was hit by a passenger vehicle. The details are not yet known, but it is believed that both vehicles crashed into one another when they entered the intersection, smashing the motorcycle into a mangled heap scattered all over the road, including the motorcycle driver’s helmet and a shoe.

As a result of injuries sustained in the crash, the motorcyclist, identified as Lashala Deann Worthy, 40, was pronounced dead at the scene. It is not known if anyone else was injured in the crash. 

“There is no official word on the accident at this time,” Dougherty County Coroner Michael Fowler said just after noon. “The law enforcement officers are trying to re-enact the mishap now to see if they can determine what happened.”

Our deepest condolences go out to the heartbroken family of Ms. Worthy.

A Motorcycle Accident in Georgia poses a high risk of injury

According to NHTSA, nearly 80% of motorcycle accidents result in injury or death.

In Georgia, motorcycles make up just about 2% of registered vehicles, yet motorcyclists are consistently overrepresented in traffic fatalities

The latest Georgia motorcycle traffic safety statistics reveal that even though motorcyclists represented less than 1% of all persons involved in motor vehicle crashes (0.4%), they accounted for 11% of all traffic fatalities and 21% of total driver fatalities.

In the opinion of motorcycle safety experts, the most common causes of motorcycle accidents are speeding, unexpected distractions while driving, left turns, and weather conditions

All of these factors combine to create Unsafe Driving Practices

As a responsible motorcyclist, you must be familiar with good driving practices for your own safety:

  • There’s always a thrill to drive at high speeds, but going beyond the speed limit can have grave consequences
  • Take the wheel or entertain. Never mix the two. On two wheels, put your phone away, keep your eyes on the road, and even shut off your Bluetooth music
  • Always slow down at an intersection. You never know if the driver of a car can see you or is unknowingly oblivious to your presence
  • Keep an eye on the weather conditions in order to drive safely after rain, snow, or a storm.
